I don't know about Qingdao but in my city there is a small local baking shop, that sells baking supplies, they have random stuff like canned coconut milk and lime juice in a bottle.  So I would say look around for one.

Last summer I was in Qingdao they have a crazy big supermarket filled with imports, in the Hai er shopping center I believe is the name.  Its filled with fancy designer labels and downstairs has this giant supermarket.

Hello,

 

I've visited many convenience stores between Guangdong and Jiangsu province, and I've seen lots of white bags of powdered coconut milk. I even bought some because I was curious, and it sure was delicious. Look for 椰子奶 with a big picture of a milky coconut on them. You can also copy and paste the Chinese and ask your local supermarkets.

 

Look around. Most small (and big) supermarkets have these for sale. I know Walmart does as well, since I just saw a package recently.

Try Metro.  Also, I think I've seen coconut milk at the Carrefour on Hong Kong Rd.  Good luck.

You can make some very easily if you have a blender and can get fresh coconut or packaged shredded coconut (unsweetened is best). I make my own on occasion. 

 

 

Makes: 2 cups

Ingredients

1 cup finely shredded coconut (unsweetened)
2-1/2 cups hot water (divided)

Directions

  1. You want the water to be hot, but not boiling. Add 1-1/2 cups hot water, along with the entire 1 cup of coconut into a blender. Blend at high speed for 3 minutes.
  2. Set a very fine mesh strainer over a bowl or large glass measuring cup. Pour the blender contents into the strainer, and use a spoon or spatula to press the milk out of the pulp. This first pressing is coconut cream. (Alternatively, you can pour into a cheesecloth and squeeze the liquid from the pulp.)
  3. Transfer the dry-pressed coconut pulp back into the blender and add another cup of hot water. Blend at high speed again, this time for 2 minutes.
  4. Set the fine mesh strainer back over the bowl or large glass measuring cup. Pour the blender contents into the strainer and press the milk out of the pulp again.  This second pressing is light coconut milk. Together, they make a beautiful full-fat coconut milk.
  5. Refrigerate leftover milk. It will separate in the fridge, with the fat rising to the top. Simply heat it gently in a saucepan and stir it with a whisk to blend it into milk again.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
